With its range of Xiaomi 13, it would seem that the Chinese manufacturer has moved away from its policy on the optimal quality-price ratio which made the brand attractive. A few weeks ago, the Xiaomi 13 Pro was released for a price of 1,299 euros. Clearly, tech is going through a very dark period. To restore the balance, the Xiaomi 13 Lite is much more accessible, and hardly has it been released that it is already benefiting from a reduction on Rakuten bringing its price down to 459.90 euros.

The Xiaomi 13 Pro offers a successful user experience, especially in the photo, but the increase of 200 euros compared to the previous generation is a stain.

Xiaomi 13 Lite at the best price?
A versatile camera
The Xiaomi 13 Lite shares a few features with its predecessor, the Xiaomi 12 Lite, especially in terms of the screen. We find a 6.55-inch AMOLED panel in 2,400 x 1,080 pixel definition capable of a refresh rate of 120 Hz. This is more than adequate for a mid-range smartphone. Its design is different from the two other models in the series, and largely because of a… Dynamic Island? We see there that Xiaomi is once again inspired by Apple, but this Dynamic Island has nothing to do with that of the iPhone 14, it is actually a punch all there is has more normal housing the front sensors. RAS.
In this series of Xiaomi 13, the photo component has been considerably revised and even the Lite model has had the right to improvements. The Chinese manufacturer notably announces 123% more brightness in the photos compared to the previous model. The rear module consists of a 50MP main sensor, an 8MP ultra wide-angle and a 2MP macro sensor. On the front we have a 32MP ultra wide-angle with a depth of field sensor.
Some compromises to stay accessible
The performances have also been revised upwards, we go from a Snapdragon 778G to a Snapdragon 7 Gen 1 which sets your smartphone on fire. This SoC offers an excellent experience whether for photos or for gaming, it is not the same level as the Snapdragon 8 Gen 1, but it was precisely designed to be more affordable and better control the heating than its elder . This processor comes with 8 GB of RAM and this version has a storage space of 128 GB.
Regarding autonomy, we will have to wait a little to have more precise measurements. We can only say that the Xiaomi 13 Lite has a 4,500mAh battery and can take fast charging up to 67W. Despite a decent track record, the Xiaomi 13 Lite had to make some compromises compared to the other two models from the Serie. First at the SoC level (the Xiaomi 13 and the Pro model are equipped with a Snapdragon 8 Gen 2), then the software which is a generation behind and will only benefit from updates over the next two years.
